    Not sure if I made a misstake with installing ISPconfig3 or that it's supposed to be like this.

    At the moment I'm moving some websites over from an old ISP 3 server to a new ISP 3 server.

    For some reason some sites (that are making use of fixed paths) did not work, and after a close look I discovered that the client(s) paths are not the same of both servers.

    Old server setup with ISPconfig 3: /var/clients/clientX
    And: /var/www with simlinks to /var/clients/clientX

    New fresh setup with ISPconfig 3: NO /var/clients/clientX
    BUT: /var/www/clients/clientX
    And: /var/www/ with simlinks to /var/www/clients/clientX

    Did I make a mistake when installing ISPconfig 3, or is this the new layout?

    Thats the new layout. The old one caused sometimes problems with suexec as /var/clients is not within the suxec dir that is statically compiled into apache.

    clients web directory with /bin /dev /etc ....??

    An other thing that I noted is that the clients web directory has also a lot of other directorys in it (like /bin /dev /etc /home .. see image). Is this also a new thing?

    these directory structure is there because you enablec "jailed" (chrooted) for the website.

    Thats the thing. I did not enable "jailed" , and it's only with some sites.

    You must have selected jailed either for a ssh user or for a cronjob. Otherwise these directories would have not been created.

    Yes. I did create cronjobs for the accounts. I guess that this set the 'jailed' option to on.

    Thank you for explaining.
